The Saudi-led coalition in Yemen intercepted an explosive-laden drone fired by the Houthis towards Saudi Arabia

Coalition spokesman Col. Turki al-Maliki, said in a statement that coalition forces managed to intercept and destroy an unmanned explosive-laden drone launched by the Houthi towards Khamis Mushait city” in southern Saudi Arabia. He said the Houthis targeting of civilian areas amounted to “war crimes”. A Saudi-led coalition aimed at reinstating the Yemeni government has worsened the situation, causing one of the world’s worst man-made humanitarian crises with nearly 80 per cent or about 30 million of its people needing humanitarian assistance and protection and more than 13 million in danger of starving to death.
